Just take apart the scanner with a small phillips precision screwdriver and clean the pcb board of all corrosion with a dry toothbrush. And it should work like new. Shotgun 420

The alert is to loud, how can I turn down the volume for the alert?


Press the WEATHER/SNOOZE button to turn on the weather radio. Then press the "UP" or
"DOWN" volume button to select desired listening level. (Note: Turning the volume all the way
down [where no bars show] puts the radio into silent mode.)

Hope that helps resolve the issue.

Regards

How do you set the weather alert on the uniden BC3RS40


Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. The BC340CRS has a weather monitor feature that will let you listen to any NOAA weather channels that are active in your area, but it does not have a weather alert feature. To get this feature you'll need to move up to the BC370CRS.

Need the manual for your BC340CRS? You can download/print it here:

Need to make sure programmed


Program the Midland 74-109 Weather Radio
a) Turn unit on. Extend the antenna. Adjust volume up slowly; Do you hear anything? If not, try replacing the 9 volt battery with a fresh one, in the accessible battery compartment underneath the unit. Repeat above steps.
b) If no sound is heard, turn unit over and look for "WEATHER" slide switch on bottom. With unit on & volume adjusted to comfortable hearing level, slowly slide switch down (or up) through various frequencies [1)162.550, 2) 162.400, 3) 162.475, 4) 162.425, 5) 162.450, 6) 162.500, 7) 162.525] until voice transmissions are heard. This should be the closest National Weather Service (NWS) broadcast for your area. Check the NWS website at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrbro.htm for your state, click on the state name, and look for the site name or site location nearest you. The frequency for that site should be the strongest, and appropriate for your area.
c) You can set the alert tone, for special weather alert broadcasts, on the bottom of the unit on the slide switch marked "ALERT". Set the switch to the desired type of alert: 1) LED [LED on top of unit (marked ALERT) lights up when alert is broadcast-no siren tone/alarm is heard] 2) LED & ALARM [LED lights up and alarm/ siren tone is heard] 3) VOICE [LED on top of unit lights up and voice broadcast is heard, only; no siren tone/alarm is heard].
d) Be sure to press the "ALERT" button on top of the unit and leave the volume at a comfortable listening level to hear weather alerts for your area (Alert LED on top of unit lights up to show Alert function is active). You can test the present volume level by pressing the "TEST" button. Be sure to press the "ALERT" button again after listening to the volume level to re-set the Alert function. You can listen to weather broadcasts anytime, by pressing the "WEATHER" button. After listening, be sure to re-press the "ALERT" button to reset the Alert function.
e) 9 volt battery life should last about 6 to 7 months, depending on how much unit is used an number of alerts received. Replace battery every 6 months, or when you replace your smoke alarm battery, or at beginning and end of daylight savings time. A 12 volt AC adapter to replace the battery, can be used. One should have been supplied with unit. If not, a replacement can be found at Radio Shack.
f) This should complete your Midland Weather Alert Radio Model 74-109 programming.

The frequencies on my scanner are not coming in


while the weather channel is coming in hi LO (lockout) so that if its programmed into a regular scanning memory it will skip. If that dont work look for a lock button or keyboard lock and press that then scan.

Need to unlock our radioshack pro 2018 200 channel desktop scanner


Easy to use right out of the box!
Explore preset frequencies used for non-trunked police/fire, aircraft, marine, NOAA weather and more. Just attach the antenna, switch it on and touch one of five buttons. With just two keystrokes, you can store a frequency you find in the 200-channel memory for later scanning or monitoring. You can also search for activity in frequency ranges you specify or program known "action" frequencies on the keyboard.

  • 1-touch search lets you find police/fire, HAM radio, marine and 7 NOAA WX frequencies fast
  • Built-in weather receiver sounds an alarm when your NOAA weather station sends an alert
  • 50-frequency search skip locks out undesired frequencies
  • Programmable by computer (requires Scanner PC Programming Kit #20-048)

Click on the mute button while WEATHER is selected on the dial. This should MUTE audio and ALERT will appear on LED. Then you will only hear ALERTS.

162.550 NOAA weather frequency


If your still having the problem, it could be that the transmitter for that freq lost some of it's power, so your scanner cannot pick up a clear signal. If everything else is working ok, that's my guess. Hope this helps,,, Mechanic
